Best Grand Funk Railroad Songs

The Top Ten

1 I'm Your Captain I'm Your Captain

It is very hard for me to pick the best Grand Funk song as I have so many, however I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home hits me in so many different ways, musically, emotionally, etc. That I pick it number 1. That band was awesome & were extremely underrated. Still listen to all of their albums frequently.

This is absolutely epic in every possible way a song can be. IT starts quiet, builds strong, has a memorable lull, ends with one of the best possible fades in music. Breathtaking!

One of the "Greatest" Rock Bands Ever...

YES! I was hoping to see this one at Number 1. Super song.

2 Inside Looking Out Inside Looking Out

I remember walking into our local YMCA in the day and hearing this coming of the PA system. Somebody had it on as background music whilst doing some repair work. I was about 14 years of age and was transfixed by the power of the song. I think this was the moment I fell in love with 'Rock ' Music. It still has that effect on me now. I had never heard of this band, as they were'nt played a lotmon the UK radio stations, and I'd have to agree that they are still a very underrated band.

My favorite band. Got turned on to them around 1969. Haven"t stopped rocking" with them since. Definitely, I believe, the best band ever. You"re not gonna hear or see a better group of MUSICIANS.

My all time favorite since I bought the Paranoid album the day it was released!

Power is the word for this song. Still sounds good today.

Wonderful song, great for listening, can't get it out of my head

I was in love and lost this song makes me cry me

I think 'Bad time' was an unforgettable quality hit. But not a real rockhit.

12 Paranoid Paranoid

Pure metal rock at its best... Nobody could touch GFR in concert and this song is a prime example of a power trio!

13 Footstompin' Music Footstompin' Music
14 Rock N' Roll Soul Rock N' Roll Soul

The best of them solo is in this song

15 Mr. Limousine Driver Mr. Limousine Driver

Great song inside looking out should be at the top of every play list

16 Mean Mistreater Mean Mistreater

The best their stuff. It's like the music of my soul. I don't even like so much this band, but this song... Really perfect.

17 Walk Like a Man Walk Like a Man
18 Nothing Is the Same Nothing Is the Same
19 Out to Get You
20 I Come Tumblin'

The BEST Rock song ever to me. Mark, Don and Mel play withsuch a grooving heavy passion. Don screaming vin the background during Mel's solo makes me go crazy with him.I don't care what anyone says or how they feel about it. Mark's voice and the harmonies are unsurpassed. "Upsetter played before it is very groovy indeed.

It's all about how the chemistry of these three men recorded together. There has been no other musician in the day of their music in the 70's than Don Brewer.

Listen to this song on big speakers, loud, and hear Mark's great vocals and guitar playing. Still gets my adrenaline going!
